Grand River Park, located not far from downtown Grand Rapids, is the perfect place for an afternoon picnic, but what people may not know, is that it is also the perfect location for hiking, biking, wildlife viewing and more! The park has numerous overlook platforms across the park where visitors can view the river and the wetland areas – ideal for photos and for those interested in bird watching and wildlife viewing; or for those just interested in getting away from it all and connecting with nature. In total, the park spans 162 acres and encompasses upland woods, floodplain forest, restored native grasslands, wetlands and there is even a small lake.
